Web Conferencing: 10 Fresh Ideas for Improving Your Team’s Performance

Telecommuting has slowly been gaining popularity in recent years. By reducing the need for business travel, Web Conferencing provides the tools your remote teams need to increase productivity, save money and reduce their carbon footprint. In addition, telecommuting seems to really be taking off.  An article in the New Yorker noted that the number of people working from home for American companies rose by more than 60% between 2005 and 2009. With Telecommuting, Webcasts, Webinars, and Document Sharing, there are more Web Conferencing solutions available than ever before.  The choice is yours!

Save time and decrease transportation expenses by introducing online collaboration tools to your team.

3 – Encourage Telecommuting

Use web conferencing resources to enhance telecommuting opportunities at your company and to improve time management.
